The Infiltrators is unlike anything you’ve seen—a seamless melding of documentary footage and reenactments, exposing our broken immigration and detention system. This social justice documentary follows a group of Dreamers who purposefully get thrown into a for-profit detention center to fight for change from within, offering a new lens into activism.


"Now more than ever we need to be reminded that the poor and huddled masses are real people with real families, all yearning to be free."
"The Infiltrators is unflinching yet entertaining storytelling and couldn't be timelier in this oppressive age of Trumpism."
- San Antonio Current
"This is a necessary film; but rather than feeling like homework, watching it is a thrill."
- Hollywood Reporter
